About this fund

This fund supports community groups working with young people to take up musical instruments. 

Purpose of this fund

The fund supports piano scholarships at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow but it will also make a small number of awards to community-based organisations who are helping young people to learn a musical instrument and play music as part of a group.  Successful applications are likely to focus on tuition costs and musical instruments which can be loaned out to young people.  The fund has £40,000 to spend this financial year.
